Mercury Retrograde in Cancer: Drunk in (Past) Love

Have you recently found yourself stalking your ex on Facebook? Your ex-ex, the one who you broke up with in college? Thank Mercury Retrograde in sentimental Cancer, the sign that rules all-things nostalgic. If you pine for past love from June 7 to the 17th, you’re simply par for the cosmic course.

Mercury rules our mental processing, and when it’s retrograde, we tend to cover old ground. When we’re doing it right, we can fix things that are broken in the most practical way possible. That tends to work when the planet of communication is in an intellectual Air sign like Gemini, a launch-hungry Fire sign like Aries, or a hard-working Earth sign like Capricorn. But Cancer is an emotional Water sign, so it’s easy to get carried away on waves of ancient memories -- ones that don’t really go anywhere.

During this intoxicating 11-day period, it might be a bit difficult to know where your past ends and your current life begins. You may dream of an old lover, or see a vision of him/her while walking down the street, one that turns out to be nothing more than a mirage.

Similarly, an ex could suddenly think of you and reach out. You might get an out-of-the-blue text message from your first (or second) love. You may be tempted to do the same after spending an afternoon reading the journal you kept in high school -- the one were you circled your boyfriend’s name in red hearts: “Me & Johnny 4ever”

That’s all well and good if you’re both single, but don’t expect it to go anywhere. Reuniting under Mercury Retrograde, especially in a sign like Cancer, is more like swimming out to sea on a drift and landing right back where you started. It’s sweet to dip into a bit of nostalgia, but if you take it too seriously, you may end up sinking into the melancholic side of Cancer.

If you do connect, remember that you’re merely exploring the oceanic depths of your past and your own psyche -- you’re not necessarily meant to stay there forever.
